The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
And I guess I also just used the new text editor (the old one did not cause me problems) . It seems very comprehensive for the messages I usually type :-)
I use Chrome 5.0.375.126 on Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit .

Full screen mode - click the maximize button on the right side of the map's toolbar will allow the map to occupy the entire browser window. Click the restore button (same button as maximize) to restore the map to the original size.Multiple follow road modes - the previous map has auto follow road. With this version, you can control how to follow the road with pedestrian, bike and car modes. For example, if you select bike mode, then the route will be optimized for cycling. That is, it will obey all traffic laws and will avoid highways. In pedestrian mode, you can go the wrong way in a one way street.More accurate calculations - the previous set of distance formulae are fairly accurate. The distance calculations are now accurate to within inches. In reality, you'll never get this kind of precision because each pixel represents several feet even if you zoomed all the way in. Still, don't you feel better knowing that the distances are calculated so accurately?Pre-populate New Workout with Course Name Several people told me that when they log a workout, they would browse through their list of maps first. They want a way to create a workout from the map they're viewing so I added a "Log" button on the view course page. Clicking this button will bring you to the new workout page with the course field already populated.
All four, but especially the last one here, make me so happy that I just logged a run while giggling and clapping my hands in glee. Thanks Eric!!!
